Pollutant concentrations near the surface of the earth are of central concern in protecting public health, agricultural productivity, and ecosystems. This chapter discusses the results of a state-of-the-art numerical model of atmospheric dynamics and chemistry quantifying the effects on air quality over China of the policy scenarios described in previous chapters. It provides a brief overview of numerical model types. Some general but fundamental differences between the modeling approaches adopted in this chapter are then discussed. A deeper description of the model employed in this study is then presented. The chapter also presents the model results, focusing on the effects of the different policy scenarios on air quality.

Keywords:   pollutant concentrations, agricultural productivity, air quality, China, model results
